Smaller pack or none at all.

For long all day use 1 or 2 packs btw the two of us depending on the season.

Contents in say Black diamond Bbee for cooler conditions

Nylon cycling windbreaker (the mountain bike versions seem to be very tough, breathe well and light)
midweight - heavyweight capilene longsleeve shirt (lighter and less bulkier than fleece)
Note: if it's really cold I'll pack a belay jacket and booties.
1-2 liters of water for both partners
purification tablets, knife, firestarter, tiny first aid kit, & bandanna (space blanket depending on the trip

For Arches (or moving quickly in general) we skip the pack, tiedthe jackets around our waist, wear a few thin.mid lairs (easier to regulate, strip and stow), attach 1L bottle to our harnesses, bandanna and beanie in my cargo pockets with the knife and lighter.

Shoes wise, have found that using water moccasins instead of clunkier approach shoes are not only lighter, but also lower in profile when carried; plus find that they can be warm and have excellent traction on the rock.

Hope this helps
